“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Just came in this place early this morning and after a great walk along the shores of Port Stanley, we thought of dropping by for something to eat since its almost lunch. We ordered one hamburger with fries and the 2pc yellow perch with fries and the orange juice they are famous for. Spent $20 in total for a very unsatisfying meal! The burgers are just like a frozen patty in a grocery-store bun, the fish slices are so small that you can miss it with the big dump of oily-reheated fries with the not so good tasting coleslaw for a side. The good thing is that the "Orangenade" is bearable.. Not too sweet but cold-orangey for a hot afternoon. So I suggest just try to bring your own food or find another place if you're hungry from a long day at the beach. It might be right in front of the beach, but spend your money in the in-store Shaw's ice cream and it might be worth your money.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Went there for the perch but over cooked and dead fries. Not what we expected, orangeade ok was probably the high point of dinner. And was over priced as we have found other perch at better prices.

“Gone down hill”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

This used to be a popular restaurant because of the great food., but it has really gone down hill. The quality is not the same. The only thing decent to eat is the perch on a bun. Not impressed with the young girls serving with their long hair loose like that. I was told by the supervisor that they are not required to wear hair nets. This is the only place on the lake to get a meal, so one does not have much choice. Will not go back.

“Get the fries”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We go here as often as we can whenever we visit ON. I can't attest to the quality of the rest of the food, but the fries are great! My very favourite part of any visit to Mackie's, however, is the chocolate milkshakes. They are the best I've ever head.
